  Dr. Hung-Lin Chi joined The Hong Kong Polytechnic University as a Research Assistant Professor at the Department of Building and Real Estate in June 2017. His background is computer-aided and civil engineering and his research topics include automation processes in construction (construction route planning), sensing and tracking technologies (e.g. RFID, Laser scanning), virtual and augmented reality (VR/AR) and robotics (tele-operated construction machinery). He obtained his Ph.D. degree in National Taiwan University in Taiwan. The topic of his PhD research is "Development of an AR-Enhanced Tele-Operation Crane and User Interface." He studied in group of Computer-Aided Engineering under department of Civil Engineering in National Taiwan University until 2013. He possessed a research fellow position responding for the research coordination of sensing, tracking and visualization group in Australasian Joint Research Centre for Building Information Modelling in Curtin University from 2013 to 2017. His current studies include developing path re-planning algorithms for construction crane simulations; integrating RFID data in the virtual environment for progress tracking and safety management; as-built modelling using laser scanned point cloud; and system integrations of BIM and inspection management systems
